Patriotic Front candidate for Mfinshe Ward By-election in Malole Constituency, Mungwi District of Northern Province was unable to file in his nomination papers yesterday for the April 11th 2019 parliamentary by election as he was involved in an accident.

Joseph Mulenga had left behind some of the documents required by Electoral Commission of Zambia and was forced to return to the Boma Offices to collect the remaining documents.

PF Media Director Sunday Chanda said unfortunately, Mr. Mulenga got involved in a road traffic accident on his way back resulting in him missing the deadline.

Mr. Chanda said due to this unforeseen situation, he was unable to beat the ECZ’s stipulated deadline for filling in.

Meanwhile, two candidates successfully filed in nominations for the Mfinshe ward by -election in Mungwi district of Northern Province.

    In one breathe you say the elections are for the parliamentary by election, but in another you say it is for the local government (ward)… which is which. Man how do you guys constantly get simple things wrong? Unbelievable!

    Hope he is a OK… he really wanted, he must have been over-speeding. But just the fact that he forgot papers is enough to disqualify this dude. How could he honestly deliver if he is this disorganised; forgetful and incompetent? Jeez!


  3. Give that seat to the Green Party , it’s abiut time we heard sensible contributions in Parley


  4. Don’t these politicians know the documents required for nominations. Why should he forget other documents honestly.
